, requires us all i think he rethink how we stand in the middle east. so tonight i'd like to talk about the three threats to the united states that emanate from the persian gulf. iran, saudi arabia, and what i call al qaeda -ism. in speaking tonight about the persian gulf, and the war against the islamist militancy emanating from there, i want to start with words george washington used to describe the new national governments responsibilities to ensure that americans clearly understand the threats they face at home and abroad. i am sure that the massive citizens of these united states meanwhile, washington told john j. in 1796. and i believe that they will always act will whenever they can update a right understanding of matters. let me say that i share washington's fate and he essentially sound common sense of american. except perhaps that of the coming generation whose male members seemed unable to figure out how to put a baseball cap on so the brim points forward. but i'm not saying saying that when a national government under either party is capable or even desirous of the actually
energy user? plus will the iraqi military be ready to guarantee the country's security after u.s. forces withdraw in december? but, first, the chief of navel operations, admirable gary roughhead recently joined reporters from defense news and other gann et media publications to discuss service personnel programs. we bring you excerpts from our wide-ranging interview. we start with personnel levels. in september, admirable roughhead said the navy should have 375,00 sailors but dropped that number. we asked him what changed. >> as we look at the end strength and it's not so much how many people should be in the navy, it really is what are the jobs in the navy and then how many people do you need to perform those functions. so it's very easy to say, well, you know, navy has x amount of people, so that's where we want to be. but what we constantly do as we go through the budget process is we're looking at the forestructure and the functions that have to be performed, and then how do you size that? i would submit that in the navy we in the past few years have done some incredible work to bill

[speaking korean] in the new year, may have much good luck and fortune. new year's was a time for my family to get together and build community but also to reflect on the previous year, what challenges lie ahead of us. today at the board of supervisors, we recognized black history month. for me, that is always a reflection of the work of people that have come before us so that we can be where we are today. as asian am
in sanford cisco. we have all gotten into an elevator, the doors have closed, and it has carried us to our destination. have you ever wondered how elevators were -- work? we check out the need outside the elevator using current technology and we learn about the latest destination elevated technology all here in san francisco. we will also visit the machinery where all the behind- the-scenes gears control these incredible machines. we are very fortunate today to have an expert with those who is going to walk us are around elevators in san francisco. can you tell us about the history of elevators in san francisco? the measure -- >> sure. the history of elevator technology evolves with the city. first elevators were installed for moving materials in the 1860's. in the 1870's, the first passenger elevator was installed, and that allowed building heights to go up to about seven floors. starting in the 18 eighties, 1890's, the first electric elevators were installed. that allowed for buildings to go up even higher, even more than 10 floors, and those were the first elevators that became represen

california makes a fewer variety of things than it used to. remember, fliker and tumbler and twitter don't make anything. neither does facebook or google. there's nothing to be loaded on trucks, no hardware. it turns out hardware start-ups are having a hard time of it lately. entrepreneurs who build aren't getting funding the way dotcoms are. build a better mousetrap or robot, and the venture capitalists do not necessarily beat a path to your door. >> and so it gives you a neato feeling. >> for max, who's taking the technology found in those self--driving cars and turning it into robot vacuum cleaners, it means fewer dollars for research, production and marketing. max is the ceo of neat-robotic, years of experience in hardware. joined by kim mcnicklaus of forbes and jon swartz of "usa today." you build this thing which we don't have on the show very often. oftentimes, tell me about your social network, how are you using twitter to -- you actually build a thing which goes in a cardboard box and gets put on a truck, which is somewhat rare these days. >> that's correct. yeah. the concept of

they will be in wanting to use the city services. that is one of our strategy is to get the employers to come knocking on the city sto's door when they are looking to hire people. it is really employer engagement that we need to get much more involved with. supervisor avalos: what about difficult populations? there is a good faith effort to integrate like the incarcerated population. the city purport's through nonprofits and some city departments, it tries to integrate as much as they can the training and placement. the numbers show it pales in comparison to those that actually needed. how will this procedure get at the population? >> there are multiple populations in san francisco with high barriers. formally incarcerated, oewd does a series for community- based organizations specifically geared towards helping this population. the formerly homeless is another population that is increasingly difficult to find employment opportunities for. partnering with community-based organizations and linking them up with opportunities in the job market and playing the brokerage services is where we can provide th
cooperative and letting those dollars go. others have not. this is an evolutionary process in us trying to make sure that we are getting the best return for our investment from all the city departments tasked and funded with work force. first source was something the city used to stand by in terms of making sure that those who contract with san francisco and public contracts are doing their best to hire locally. this is a predecessor to mandatory local hiring. it was not under oewd, but was an island in itself. the people who had run that had left the city. it was without the kind of leadership that would modernize its approach. we legislated that first source would be put under the rubric of oewd. now, most everything we have been leading toward in terms of synthesizing work force dollars, which is still in play and evolving -- first source, which was never under oewd before, and the question of how weak influence legislatively both the public and private sector on their compliance with our local hiring. that would also go under oewd. it is a full-frontal strategy try to make su

jurisdictions that do not give the land fill in the county or the region. that would give us kind of an apples to apples comparison. it is also good to be able to look at there could be a matter that could be provided about the use of margin. i am not sure that is something how that is being done anywhere with refuse. i think it will be a useful thing to look at. the scope seems to be a bit narrow. it is outside of what is currently being done, but there are some opportunities that could have a good impact on city infrastructure. there are opportunities that we might see, a lot of barging being done. those will go away. perhaps this way we could make use of the barge for the next hey phase possibly close to a land fill site. what we had before us is that they will contract with trucks to go across the bay bridge to a site in the oakland and have the rail. is there a way to do that? the other question, if that is something that can be included in the scope of the work, what is the impact to the public infrastructure? we know that the port is struggling to build infrastructure. it w

choice along many outstanding candidates to lead us over the next several years. >> over the past several months when this issue has come up, it had been agonizing. the board has been put into a difficult situation. there are a lot of differences of opinion on how to run the city, how to mass make a decision, who should be in place, 11 people to agree on that is a challenging thing. i think we have done the best we can do in the process, considering the difference of opinions. >> the people of san francisco can now choose their mayor, the direction they want to go. that is why this decision was so appropriate. >> the other big shock is that the moderates seem to have won this round. people thought, progressives have themselves on the board. there is no reason that they will not get together and take a noted leader who is a progressive to be interim mayor, and then stayed there for another term. the great thing about being in term mayor is to get to run as an incumbent. the fact that the progressives could not get together to get somebody into office as interim mayor in their own self-inte

, are used in a way that they are held accountable. we have seen since the birth of various legislative strategies of the last three years the growth of one-stop job training and placement centers in the city. up until three years ago, there had only been one on mission, and the edd office, which is really state-run. try to include western edition and other areas throughout the city and witness this infusion of satellites from city hall to try to get people engaged in a way that they understand what is eligible to them, available to them, and how they can best take use of the resources that we provide. that was always something -- the city had plenty of resources. they were not reaching out in ways beyond what was becoming more commonplace or well-known, like city build, which is a success in its own right. people know of it much more. other programs that people were less familiar with or are beginning to become more familiar with because of these approachable satellites try to engage our citizenry and who are looking for jobs insistence -- job assistance. i would not be surprised if wh

for joining us. >> thank you. >> jamie: what is on the table actually for the u.s.? >> well, we could, declare a no-fly zone but that is complicated, because, while the u.s. has aircraft, in all the nate tows countries, italy and britain and germany we cannot use this aircraft unless we have permission from the host country and that is not likely to come. they've already said they will not give permission unless the u.n. or nato-wide agrees to that and that will not happen. >> jamie: going it alone -- >> we'd be in it alone and, a no fly zone is not just to say, nobody fly over lybia, what a no-fly zone would require is that u.s. aircraft, probably based on carriers, would go in to lybia and would bomb lybia and bomb the air defense system of lybia and fly 24/7 over lybia and that is a major commitment. and, also sets the precedent, what about the next revolution that you will see? because you will see more of these. and, so, the question is, could we do it? yes, we could but it is at a great cost and secondly, joe, jamie is the question, should we? now, right now, so far the libyan rebels are

the book was to honor the men and women who won that war for us before the politicians threw it away. you frequently see tet in headlines these days. whenever anything bad happens in the world, terrorists do some kind of attack or insurgents have some kind of spectacular bombing or something, you'll see a pundit or a commentator say this is just like the tet offensive. iraq, afghanistan, wherever. i've saw, i saw a headline about tet referring to northern mexico, that some kind of tet offensive was going on there. "time" magazine said that the wikileaks document dump was just like the tet offensive. i don't quite see how you can make the analogy, but anyway, the point is that tet is out there. and the problem with this is that every time you say tet what you're really saying is defeat. what you're saying is that whatever we're involved in is like vietnam, it's a quagmire. we can't win and so forth. and, in fact, the bad guys out there, the terrorists and the insurgents, talk openly about the tet offensive and vietnam as their model. this is how they want to win. because terrorists and ins
